  1. Of course..but these fixtures just don't happen anymore, and if as many do, want them to fold, they never will. Suppose I can take the laid back view over them, because I moved from Bristol when I was 16, but never lost the passion for City, never will. The rivalry at school was massive, but my sister married a gas head, and to be honest I used to go to Eastville with him and his mates, but never wanting a gas win. But he used to come with me to the Gate too, and those Wembley finals too, he always, he said wanted a City win. Those days at Eastville, and AG were massive local derbies, and I am glad I have those memories, some fantastic players, Harold Jarman, Alfie Biggs, Big John, brilliant. Anyway thanks for all the bites, best fun I have had for ages.
  2. Look, you got some easy likes and Lols from the easily impressed, well done, made your day did it? You are making as if Rovers are our rivals, my God how sad?
  3. Unabated, unchallenged , thought processes, yep that is what it is, would have hoped we have moved on from the seventies, Trumpton, Hollowhead, Mem, et. all, God sake move on, we have a fine club, don't waste energy on that lot, seems like we actually are in awe of them.
  4. In what? Rivals are assumed to be a force that challenges you, if that's what you think, so be it.
  5. So I am not a true City fan according to your skewed logic...grow up ,
  6. There should come a time when some should stop obsessing over them, to keep banging on about them shows they get under your skin. They are not our rivals, they used to be but not anymore, his sort of tribal post code thing seems to prevent us moving forward. I admit though to find it entertaining in their demise, but the other part of me thinks there a lot of other good Bristol folk who are completely down over this, and I could never laugh in their faces over that.
  7. They are a pox on Bristol, along with the Kill the Bill protesters, but our own form is pretty much diabolical too, losing at home 6 on the trot, Brum, Rotherham etc, IF we were in a postion to mock, fair enough, but we are not.
  8. Us mocking Rovers position, is frankly embarrassing.
  9. I back in the late 50s was Secretary of a under 11 football team, that played in the Church of England league. I must have been just 10 or 11. There was an AGM or similar of the league at their HQ at Temple Street Bristol. I went on my own, extraordinary thinking back being so young. After the meeting I was approached by a Mr K Summerhill, the Hon Sec of the league, who offered me a lift in his car. On getting him he immediately showed me some pictures of men and boys engaging in sexual acts. I panicked and fled the car, I did tell my parents, but they never did report it. Needless to say I never did go an where near that place again, but it still haunts me as to what extent the abuse was, under the guise of the Church.
  10. Agree it was always the season finale, well until they started messing and it was pre season for the reserves. Mind you Bristol has its fair share of yobs as was demonstrated last night.
  11. All these years without having a local adversary and some still worry about them. Get over it, all about what we do.
  12. Some get on the Bandwagon, not knowing why or even the destination.
  13. Good point, when you factor in the Luke Ayling Gate episode, looks like Nigel is testing his authority to make his own decisions?
  14. That was his brother, a real bad dude, cough.
  15. NP knows him and we need a LB?
  16. Don't care if we signed Blad the Impaler, just as long he can play a bit.
  17. Thought that from the off with Gregor, doesn't seem to have any gravitas. NP is an imposing figure and doesn't suffer fools gladly.
  18. Ayling has always got an error in him, partly due to the way he plays, out of position too many times too.
  19. What a fantastic gesture, top man. And as said Marvellous is indeed Marvellous, and so is Toby Jones. Worth saying to that Wolves manager donated £250k of his own money in a charitable cause to feed the needy. 'Feed The Pack' add Marcus Rashfords efforts too, its all good.
  20. Put yourself in his shoes? What's not to like, a sane owner with a few quid, Bristol, new training ground and a club that is poised to challenge for the Prem with someone like him at the helm. Not since Dicks have we all been united as to the future, he is of an age that this seemingly fits well with him, loving his post match interviews, clearly he is relishing it here, very exciting, what a difference a few weeks make?
  21. With that squad he had he was never going to survive this season, howrver they managed to best the Gas after a losing run of 100 or so matches, and we let them win 1.0 by just not turning up! Have you ever seen such a poor striking options in the two Ollies? SU will I feel struggle now, they always seem to have lacked an identity even when they were managed by Warnock in his madman period.
